SAVANNAH, GA -

One person is in custody and a large amount of marijuana and weapons were seized following an investigation conducted by the Chatham-Savannah Counter Narcotics Team (CNT), according to a press release issued late Thursday. 

"Earlier this year, CNT in a working partnership with United States Postal Inspectors, began investigating suspected drug activity occurring at "Elev8ed" located at 404 West Broughton Street in Savannah, Georgia. During the course of the investigation the store's owner, 29-year-old Mark Redman, was identified as the primary suspect. Additionally, other locations and persons were identified during the investigation.

On yesterday, CNT executed a total of three search warrants. Two were in the city limits of Savannah at "Elev8ed" and in the 200 block of West 37th Street; and one in unincorporated Chatham County in the 300 block of Stonebridge Circle.

The search warrants resulted in the seizure of approximately 13 pounds of high grade marijuana, 12 firearms to include assault rifles, ballistic vests, items commonly utilized in the distribution of marijuana and an undisclosed amount of U.S. currency.

Redman was arrested during yesterday's operations by CNT and charged with Trafficking Marijuana, Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Distribute and Possession of a Firearm during the Commission of a Felony. Redman was denied bond earlier today in the Recorder's Court of Chatham County, Georgia.

The seized marijuana has an estimated street value of up to $30,000.

The investigation is ongoing and more arrests are expected to be made."
